There have been a number of things that I've thought about posting for awhile now, mostly predictions and thoughts on what will/should happen during the off-season. However, as much as I'd like to post on these things, I'm going to hold off. There's one simple reason for this: playoff runs are special, and deserve our full attention. Why worry about, for example, which players will be added to the 40-man roster in November, or who will have their option picked up, or whether the Twins will go after Free Agent X this winter, when the team is battling for a playoff spot and has a chance to win a World Series? So, other than things directly related to what the Twins officially do, on and off the field, between now and whenever the season is over, I am not going to comment on these things.
What will be forthcoming when the season IS over?
1.) An analysis of some kind of the season that was
2.) My recommendations regarding players with options, free agents, and arbitration eligibles
3.) Predictions on who will be added to the 40-man roster
4.) A list of stadiums no longer in existance that I would have liked to see (I promise)
5.) Weekly updates on Winter League action
6.) Transaction monitoring
7.) Whatever else seems pertinent
And if it's 2007 speculation you're looking for, there are many other fine Twins blogs who have begun to delve into such issues with some seriousness. Seek and ye shall find.
